HEF will be supporting recovery and rebuilding efforts in Nepal through a Nepal Earthquake Recovery Fund. Donations for HEF can be made through our standard financial management organization, the Kearney Area Community Foundation. Link is in the upper right hand corner of the page.
We do not know the extent of the damage and specific needs at this time, but we are gathering funds and allocation will be determined after appropriate appraisal of needs. This will be guided by the HEF BOD and the Nepal team lead by Dr. Mahabir Pun over the next several months. True to HEF’s mission we anticipate funds will be directed towards education. This may be in the form of helping to rebuild schools or reconnect wireless systems used for education.
